I reproduced... We need to move more of the "common" ones out of the
way, without making the conditional branches lose it. Ugh.... 

Another quick and easy option: Get rid of Cell :-) There is 3 cell
ones right there  we could get rid of ;-)

 ... except that's not enough. Now the OOL handlers are bumping
into the FWNMI page. Argh. Moved a couple more, seems to work,

I'm sending you a patch in the next few monites to test that needs to
be added *before* the HV virtualization interrupts one. It works
with the few variants of allmodconfigs I managed to try on the laptop
(basically with and without RELOCATABLE).

Let me know how it goes in kisskb.
